LEAHTRAVELS: MT. ULAP – A DREAM COME TRUE

Hey guys! Here’s another travel blog! But before anything else, I’d like to apologize in advance, because this blog will have a lot of photos!!! A LOT! πŸ˜› It’s been a dream of mine to climb Mt. Ulap for as long as I can remember! It all started the first time I went trekking in Batad, Ifugao, and saw the sea of clouds over Sagada, people were talking about how beautiful Mt. Ulap was. And since you all know how fascinated I am with the clouds, I immediately researched all about Mt. Ulap, and that started my dream! I thought that if I could climb Mt. Ulap, I’d be able to touch and taste the clouds! Yes, you read it right… TASTE! And it tasted nothing! Hahaha!

Reunion at La Union

I’ve been working in the entertainment and advertising industry for almost 10 years, and have kept contact with my first ever work family for almost 8 years. As we celebrate our 8th year of friendship and being a family, we decided to have a three day trip to La Union. Our first ever beach trip all together (except with our former boss, who migrated and is now living in Canada). Eight years with this crazy bunch, and our family is getting bigger.

LEAHTRAVELS: MT. SAWI – A DAYHIKE WITH THE “UN-SAWI” COUPLE

It was 4:45amΒ on May 5 as we started walking towards the summit of Mt. Sawi. I was intrigued with its name, “Mt. Sawi.” The locals didn’t give a lot of information, but as the old story goes, the mountain was named after the suicide story of a girl who was heart broken. Damn! I heard a lot of stories similar to that, but she got the mountain, dude, and that was crazy! So I did my research about this mountain and saw the “Myth of Mt. Sawi”.

LeahTravels: A Day at the Batanes of the East – Dingalan, Aurora

Last March 11, we went hiking to three different destinations at Dingalan, Aurora – the Batanes of the East. We trekked going to the light house (first destination), view point (second destination) and to Tawasan Falls (third destination). We hiked for a total of two and a half hours. It was a tiring day for me since the last time I hiked/trekked was about two years ago, but all worth it, ’cause I saw one of the most breathtaking sceneries I’ve ever seen! We saw the perfect blue sky, a great view of the mountains and blue ocean, the light house, the falls, and other gorgeous sceneries in one fun day.

LEAHTRAVELS: LA UNION 2018

Last January 27 to 29 was our first out of town trip for the year and we were able to see again the beauty of La Union after three months. We were able to do more this time than the first time we visited San Juan, La Union. This was more fun because we were able to tag along some friends. We were able to surf for two days, explore the city, and discover more food/restaurant destinations.

So here’s a photo diary of our short trip.
